Google and LG have released a new pair of smart watches, which house the new and improved Android Wear 2.0, but the LG Watch Sport stands out as the obvious favorite. The LG Watch Style stresses form over function; the LG Watch Sport, however, plays to win.


Without a doubt, if you are deciding between the LG Watch Sport and Style, the former is the only way to go. Whereas the Style boasts a sleeker design and thinner band, the Sport offers too many more features to ignore. The Sport not only has a larger memory, providing room for a cell radio, NF chips, and even a heart-rate monitor, it also has an important physical distinction: more buttons. The Style sports one button, but the Sport has three to facilitate the ability to begin a workout or activate Android Pay.

The Sport has darkened its interface, improving battery life, and reconfigured its exercise recognition software to immediately identify exercise patterns and behavior for a more accurate fitness session.

Critics call the Sport bulky, and there may be some truth to that, but, for now, the Sport seems like the ideal medium for Android Wear 2.0.
